Science and Superstition - I

This is in response to the article “The Rationalist Movement against Quack Healing: Critical Questions” by Shubha Ranganathan (EPW, 4 January 2014).

The author deserves applause for drawing our attention to the various tribal and traditional medical and psycho-medical practices, including rituals and magic, what many call superstitious, and the recent engagement of the rationalists against such practices.
